This easy apple cake with fresh apples is juicy and moist and has a crispy, buttery-sugar crust. Seriously, it’s the best combo!
First, put butter in the freezer. It’s for the sugar-butter crust. Remember not to put all the butter into the freezer specified in this recipe. We need one portion for the batter and the other for the crust. We freeze the portion we need for the crust.

Mix eggs, sugar, vanilla, oat milk and cooled melted butter. Add cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Sift flour and baking powder. We are using all-purpose and whole wheat flour. Don’t forget to add bran from a sieve to the sifted ingredients. Mix.

Peel apples and slice them thinly, about 2-3 millimeters (roughly 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick). You can do this by hand, with a mandoline, or using a food processor grater. Of course, using the food processor is the quickest way to slice apples.

Use firm, tart-sweet apples for this easy apple cake with fresh apples. Firm apples keep their shape and taste the best, while soft apples meld with the batter during baking.

Combine liquid and dry ingredients. Add sliced apples. Mix evenly and pour into baking form. Remember, you will have a lot of sliced apples and a little batter. It’s not a mistake in the recipe. We want the cake to be extra moist and juicy, so the base is fresh apples. And you need just enough batter to bind the apple slices.

Now comes the crust. Take the butter from the freezer and grate or cut it on top. Notice how easy it is for you to grate or cut it now? That’s why we put it in the freezer.

Sprinkle with sugar. Bake. Let it cool a bit. This easy apple cake with fresh apples is ready. Enjoy!
